Decade of the doggy: Mutt Strut fundraiser is Sunday in South Lake Tahoe

Every dog gets its day. In Lake Tahoe, they get a decade.

The Animal Coalition of Tahoe’s 10th annual Mutt Strut Poker Run is Sunday, Oct. 12.

The family event in which dogs can exercise their two-legged companions who will simutaneously play poker and perhaps win some prizes!

The mutts strut their stuff on Sunday.

The Mutt Strut will begin at Lakeview Commons (intersection of Lake Tahoe Blvd. and Lakeview Ave.) from 11:00 to 11:30 a.m.  Participants will pick playing cards at stops along a 1.6 mile route, hoping for the best poker hands. Prizes will be awarded to those with the best hands. It’s not a race, it’s just a fun way to raise money for ACT — the Animal Coalition of Tahoe. All funds raised benefit ACT’s spay-neuter program for local residents, plus 10 percent of funds are donated to the El Dorado County animal shelter in Meyers.

The fun continues after the walk, with a party at Lakeview Commons featuring music, giveaways, raffle drawings, and contests such as best trick, hot dog eating and musical sit.

Poker hands may be purchased in advance for $20 for three hands, or three hands and a T-shirt for $30, at Alpine Animal Hospital (921 Emerald Bay Road) or Bonanza Boot and Leather (the new Chateau center at Stateline).  Day of event, tickets are $10 each, $25 for three hands. T-shirts are $12.

Press materials say,  … “and no poker experience is needed.” However,  that is no caveat because  ACT is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, all-volunteer corporation with the mission of reducing the number of unwanted dogs and cats in our area  – “We work toward that mission by sponsoring our low-cost spay-neuter program.
